Dadaab is the largest refugee camp in the world. It is located in Kenya, approximately sixty miles from the border with Somalia and currently houses about 350,000 displaced people.
Since 1992, Dadaab has been a place of refuge for hundreds of thousands of people fleeing violence in Somalia and the wider East African region.
Despite the camp being a place of relative safety, the occupants of the camp face many serious challenges, one of these being a lack of proper shelter / living accommodation (of particular importance given the extreme weather and temperatures) This is particularly bad for the many disabled people in the camp, who are very often unable to fend for themselves.
We want to provide a mud brick shelter, constructed by local builders, which will be far better than the ramshackle structures that so many have to live in. A single shelter costs approx £750. Can you help?
